A little opinion...About the frontage thing... I think more than change the "popular" system, a new options set for the frontage are needed. This is not because I could be somewhat affected by the change, my pics keep appearing in FrontPage and the watchers are still following my work (and I thank you so much for that ) but because I saw a lot of people misplacing art and taking advantage of the new system, helping even more to create the odd idea of a popularity "goal/prize". I like the idea of the popular frontage because it works pretty much like a musical ranking and it was a tool to know public´s preferences: wich kind of concepts/ideas/colors/styles works better and like a test to know the effect of a specific work. Somewhat of democratic voice, that helps to know to the public a bit more.A little opinion...4 years ago in Personal More Like This
Before you ask, NO, I don't think that the goal of an artist is to be popular and I don't think that "popular=better" I saw both as different parameters that sometimes goes hand by hand and sometimes runs

I have always loved anthologies. Growing up in Britain 95 percent of the comics were weekly anthologies so it has been firmly ingrained in my psyche.
I've always felt that anthologies are a good platform for experimentation, trying new ideas and styles, introducing new talent and especially good to read in the bathroom. I'll never forget the impression Heavy Metal had on me when I first saw it.
They're perfect for those moments when you've read through the 100 comics you've bought that month and realized there wasn't a single complete story in the pile.
I've recently relaunched two previously successful anthologies, A1 and MONSTER MASSACRE.

Since a young age, I have always been fascinated with flight. Growing up, my parents were good friends with a group of pilots. They specialized in cinema stunt work for movies. Every time I had the opportunity to go up in an airplane or helicopter, I took it. In the photo below, I'm in the center seat of a friend's helicopter. It was so fun!
As a youth, I would draw all types of planes -- jet fighters being the most exciting. Growing up on a healthy dose of Star Wars and G. I. Joe also fueled my love for flight. Other kids were infatuated with jets, too, and could rattle off all sorts of information about their technical aspects. I constantly checked out huge reference books from the local library because I was always more interested in drawing them than studying how fast they could fly or how much thei

5 reasons why we fail to get things doneDear, deviantart fellow artists,5 reasons why we fail to get things done1 year ago in Personal More Like This
stop wishing, start doing
As usual I had no idea what would be the topic of this journal, but I managed to think about and write down these 5 reasons why we (and I) tend to fail on things we want/have to do and I hope you'll find this journal post helpful.
1. Time management issues.
"I have no time for this", "If only I had the time for that" .. we tend to make these excuses, as if we all wouldn't have the same amount of time every single day. It's how we manage to spend that time, that matters. A lot of us have other important things to do, but let's be honest, if you have the dedication there are really no obstacles in your way. There will never be the perfect time for anything and with proper planning It's easier set the priorities for the right things.
They are everywhere. Especially on the internet. We tend to waste so many hours on checking what's new, reading bl

Sipping tea with your Muse Only by fostering a facility with the vocabulary of your artistic medium of choice, can you begin to really free yourself to be open to being creative with it.Sipping tea with your Muse1 year ago in Personal More Like This
The size of that vocabulary is another matter, and that’s about growth, improvement and development. These are important as well, and intricately linked to creativity, in parallel (more on that in a future article). But first let’s talk simply about the genesis aspect of art.
Remember when you were in high school, doodling in the margins of your notebooks? Ballpoint pen and edges of blue-lined notebooks, with half an ear listening to the lesson of the day? There was a familiarity in that setting, and ease that you moved through when you sketched these throwaway doodles. Every once in a while you’d accidentally make one that you’d really like, and you’d save that scrap of paper with notes on American History melding into the lines of a drawing of your D&D charac
An ObservationIt's really funny to me the interactions I have with people in varying environments and the different reactions I receive from people based on their perceptions. Take for instance Deviantart, which I find most interesting. Some of you create an entire persona for me based on my art style, skill level, number of page views, and watcher count. I know for a fact that there are some of you who have the misconception that I believe I am above common folk and the very air I walk on is blessed. Some people also think I'm very cool and talented and you wish you could be me. Little do you know I am the biggest dork to have ever graced this planet, second only to the dorkiest of dorks Bella. True I do not respond to every comment, but I try to respond to the comments that aren't one of the following: "Cute!" "Love it!" "Awesome Work!". DONT GET ME WRONG THOSE COMMENTS STILL MAKE ME SMILE LIKE A PUPPY WITH A NEW BONE TO CHEW! However, all I can really say to them is "Thanks!".

(dice buffydoesbroadcast...) Empecé en DeviantArt (dA) en el 2006 haciendo fotografía digital sencilla. Nunca he ido a clases ni tenía conocimiento sobre fotografía. Mi único entrenamiento formal ha sido sobre acuarelas y pasteles. Hoy en día estoy metida en la manipulación fotográfica. ¿Cómo me he metido en eso? Es sencillo: DeviantArt (dA).

ImprovementOver the years, many people have asked me for how long I've been drawing. While it's true that I started drawing as soon as I was able to hold a pencil, I was never that serious about it. In a sense, you can ask yourself if I was any serious on art altogether. Because, in the end, all kids draw. I think most people can remember making drawings in grade school. Because it's something kids do naturally. Depicting the world around them with images. The beautiful thing is that kids have no fear. They just draw whatever they like, and are usually happy with it. It isn't until the age of 10 or 12, that the outside world suddenly expects you to be either good at something, or stop doing it. It's at that age that we become self cautious about drawing. And therefore it's around that age many kids eventually stop drawing.Improvement2 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
